I always liked Ray Stevens, good singer, and better message in this song.

Appealing to the lowest common denominator to make a buck is not pretty.

No, and that is exactly what is being done by these bills being passed into law that no one gets to read and holding 1am votes. Growing massive entitlement programs and appealing to the lowest common denominator to retain perpetual power. Robbing Peter to pay Paul will always earn the loyalty of Paul.

That was stupid. The fact is neither Ray nor his listeners voted for the Democrats to start with. That is why the Democrats are not especially spooked by them.

I wonder how many people around here know that what Ray says about the majority of the people in our nation. I think that many of them are like the Congress in not understanding that a majority of us do not want what they passed.
